Think about it… how often do you wake up feeling in your gut that there’s more for you out there but you’re missing out on opportunities because you’re merely going through the motions?
In order to truly gain ownership over your success and your legacy, you must explore and pivot into NEW strategies and New places. Here we will learn how to step into the world of real estate by one of the most successful entrepreneurs & award-winning realtors, Zeeshan Anwar Malik. He was born in Abu Dhabi, studied in London, and started his career in Dubai.
He has worked for the biggest developer in the Middle East, DAMAC (DAMAC Properties has been shaping the Middle East’s luxury real estate market since 2002, delivering iconic residential, commercial, and leisure properties across the region and beyond).
At a very young age, Zeeshan became the No.1 sales performer at DAMAC and won multiple awards for being on top of the sales record for many years. At his career peak in 2019, he decided to move to London to explore international markets and gain more experience outside the Middle East. DAMAC promoted him as Head of Sales to manage the sales office in heart of London.

He soon realized that there is a huge gap in the market for Dubai real estate in London which would allow customers to have an end-to-end experience in selecting and purchasing the right property through a variety of projects from different property developers. He found that most buyers will either purchase through telephone communication or whilst on holidays in which they would have limited time & resources resulting in high chances of canceling, misselling, misguiding, and panic buying. This also meant that most buyers were not aware of local rules & regulations leading to further problems in their investments.
Zeeshan then came up with a solution in order to fill the gap in the market and started FIFTEENUK, where he started showcasing all the new and old developments, educating the clients about the whole buying process, and giving them a wide range of properties whilst sitting in London. He would then start comparing the properties discussed, the advantages and disadvantages which would help the clients to make an informed final decision. He would then manage their portfolio from buying, renting to selling, and also re-investing.
Right after the COVID-19 pandemic, Dubai was the place to be. Since Dubai was able to manage the situation effectively, it became the hot spot and escape plan for investors from all over Europe and UK. This led to an incredible increase in sales by 150%!
FIFTEENUK has experienced staff who can shortlist the client’s requirements within 12 hours and strives for customer satisfaction. They are able to make strong relationships with the developers in order to achieve higher discounts and promotional offers. Providing end-to-end services from travel arrangements to opening a bank account to obtaining a residence visa. Buying, managing, and selling a property without any hassle is their primary value, and have built their reputation on integrity.
FIFTEENUK’s 15-minute challenge: Inform them of your requirements,( no. of bedrooms, location, and budget) it will take no longer than 15 minutes to filter and shortlist suitable property in Dubai or London, which saves the clients the hassle of speaking to multiple agents and visiting properties.
